Famous talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel attended the recently-held “Toy Story 4” premiere with his family, including his son, Billy.
Jimmy Kimmel is always so hilarious and hearty when doing his job that many wouldn't believe that he ever faces any problems.
He is, however, just as human and maybe even has it tougher than the average family. His two-year-old son, Billy was born with a congenital heart condition, and that makes his appearance alongside his parents and siblings a pleasant surprise.
The event held in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, where the youngsters luckily got to watch Woody, Buzz and the other famous “Toy Story” characters play out their newest adventure.
The group of four, all comfortably dressed, posed for photos together on the red carpet. Kimmel is pictured carrying little Billy in his arms.
The youngster looked happy and calm as he licked a green lollipop in his dad’s arms. On the other hand, Jane, whose birthday is coming up very soon, was all smiles and had an adorable and colourful floral dress with matching blue shoes on.

It is heartwarming to find the family so joyous and at peace after their longtime struggles keeping Billy alive. A few months ago, the famous “The Man Show” star took to social media to celebrate Billy’s second birthday with a sweet photo of the youngster holding a carrot.
His heartfelt message also included a note of appreciation to the medical team for every effort they have made to keep his little son alive. Kimmel wrote:
“Happy 2nd birthday to our little #Easter buddy Billy. We are grateful always to the nurses and doctors at @CedarsSinai & @ChildrensLA who saved his life and all of you who prayed & sent positive thoughts our way.”
Kimmel is no newbie to fatherhood as long before he met McNearney, he was already a father of two: Kevin and Katie who are products of his previous 14-year relationship with Gina Maddy. However, his experience battling Billy's life-threatening condition has been a very testing time for him.
Just within his first year of life, Billy had to undergo multiple surgeries after doctors found that he was born with the congenital heart condition tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia.
Thankfully, Billy is a success story, and Kimmel’s pride be more evident as he told Oprah Winfrey during an interview that Billy is now “doing great.”
